's about war and peace. i think he wants peace with iran, somehow. and i think picking hagel and john kerry are part of that today. it will be interesting to look at the traffic tomorrow out of teheran and whether they respond to this or not. the president said it was time now for his generation to keep up the work on behalf of all mernls and immigrants. this is very liberal. let's listen. >> authority is not kpleet until our wives, our mothers and daughters are can earn a liviei equal to our efforts. our journey is not kpleet until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal, as well. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hope chl imgrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright, young stunts and engineers are enlisted in our work force rather than expelled from our country. our journey is not complete un
